Kathy Griffin Tears Up During Press Conference, Says Trump is Bullying Her

"Unlike these male artists, Kathy has endured the most powerful man in America, and his family, using their power to target her and her employers after she apologized".

"I'm not afraid of Donald Trump".

"What's happening to me has never happened ever, in the history of this great country, which is that a sitting president of the United States and his grown children and the first lady are personally, I feel, trying to ruin my life-forever", she said.

Then the younger Trump doubled down on his rebuke of Griffin, invoking comments Griffin made last year when she said she would like to beat Trump's youngest son, 11-year-old Barron Trump.

At a press conference Friday, Ms. Griffin declared her career is over and said President Trump "broke me".

The Uptown Theater Napa announced on its Facebook page that her show had been canceled and that ticket holders will get a full refund at the place of purchase.

But the only time she was absolutely unable to speak was when she was asked about Anderson Cooper.

And Griffin insisted she wasn't going to stop making fun of Trump, adding, "He does provide a lot of material".

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie called Griffin "disgusting" and said the photo was "completely outrageous". Trump referred to blood coming out of her eyes and other parts of her body.

Don Jr has posted a dozen tweets encouraging Griffin's many employers to dump her. He said Griffin is cooperating with the agency.

The press conference took place at the attorney's office on Friday morning (June 2) in Woodland Hills, Calif. Her defense attorney, Dmitri Gore, answered questions about the Secret Service's investigation.

Sen. Al Franken also dis-invited Griffin from an event promoting his new book, "Giant of the Senate". After all, Griffin was the one who - in an alleged joking manner - held up a fake severed head of President Trump.

In her apology earlier this week, Kathy admitted she crossed a line by holding what looked like the bloody head of the USA leader in her hand.

A New Mexico theatre also canned Griffin's show, while she also lost an endorsement deal with toilet stool company Squatty Potty.

Griffin, 56, apologized within hours of the images appearing online Tuesday, but they were met with swift and widespread condemnation.

"Kathy Griffin should be ashamed of herself".
